Through collaboration with seven of the largest financial institutions in the U.S.—Bank of America, Capital One, Chase, PNC Bank, Truist, U.S. Bank, and Wells Fargo—Authentify provides consumers and businesses a new way to help verify identities
Early Warning Services, LLC and seven of the largest banks in the US introduce Authentify, a new identity verification service for consumers and businesses. While on a participating business’ website or app, consumers can choose to be redirected to log into their online or mobile banking experience. The consumer can then share their bank-trusted data with that company, helping them streamline their identity verification process.
“A trusted identity is the key to safe, online transactions,” said Al Ko, CEO at Early Warning. “Authentify gives companies and consumers the ability to leverage bank-trusted data to help provide even greater levels of identity assurance. Businesses are able to enhance their customers’ experience, while helping reduce friction, abandonment rates and operational costs.”
By offering Authentify, companies can have greater confidence in their interactions with individuals online because the information is shared through a financial institution with the consumer’s consent, which creates benefits for all stakeholders:
- Businesses – Businesses using Authentify may reduce abandonment and fraud rates, all while streamlining both mobile and desktop experiences.
- Financial Institutions – Authentify engages banking customers with their brand while providing added value for their services outside of the banking experience.
- Consumers – Authentify creates a secure way for consumers to share their trusted financial institution information while reducing errors when filling out forms. Consumers’ banking credentials are never shared with Authentify or other companies.
